Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Tonight, I decided I should bake a sweet treat to be able to send in Kevin's lunch for the week. He requested a sweet bread and I found this recipe from Mrs. Silvieus (once again) and it came out beautifully.

Cream together:
1/4 C. softened margarine
1 C. sugar

2 beaten eggs
1 C. sour milk (using 2 tsp. white vinegar; I used apple cider vinegar and it seemed to work fine.)
1 tsp. baking powder
2 C. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla

Pour 1/2 of the batter into greased loaf pan. Sprinkle a mixture of 3 Tbsp. brown sugar and 1 Tbsp. cinnamon over that half of the batter. Add remaining batter. Use a knife to swirl the cinnamon/sugar mixture into the batter. Sprinkle 1Tbsp. brown sugar over top. (I omitted this step).

Bake @ 350 for 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely on wire rack. (Recipe may be doubled.)

  1. I have to admit, I was more than a little scared when I saw "sweet breads" as a listing on the side. I thought you were making the *other* sweet breads...which probably would have made me gag (but morbid curiosity drew me in, anyway)

    Looks like a great recipe, I'll have to try it out soon - most likely on the guys at the firehouse. They don't mind me learning to cook and feeding them.
